    Transferring hard drive contents from current Mac to a new Mac?
    If I were to upgrade my current Macbook Pro to a newer model Mac, would I be able to transfer everything on my hard drive (music, pictures, documents, etc.) to the new one? Is this done through the Time Machine backup disk?

    Okay thank you. I'm assuming this will transfer all of my apps and software as well without them having to be re-installed, such as Logic Studio and Adobe Creative Suite?
